Talks Programme

The Talks Programme for 2020-2021 has now ended.  The new season of talks will begin in September 2021, when we hope to be able to re-institute meetings at the Town Hall and the Court Room and meet face-to-face (albeit maybe masked!).

Thank you to everyone – speakers and audience – who contributed to the 2020-21 sessions delivered via Zoom.  We were delighted with the response – and it was lovely to see people who aren’t usually able to come to meetings in person .
